What do you want out of life? To be happy? Well that's just boring!
Do you think good things are better than bad things? You’re wrong again!
In Gloom, the more miserable you are the better things are going for you, and the very worst thing you can do for your friends is to bring them joy.
Each player controls the fate of an eccentric family of misfits. Your goal is sad, but simple: make your family suffer the greatest tragedies possible before allowing them to pass on to the well-deserved respite of death.
Ask penguins to poison them, make them starve in a storm or get written out of the will… The more miserable they are, the better!
That’s not all, if you want to win, you’ll have to make your rival’s family as happy and annoyingly alive as you can: delighted by ducklings, having picnics in the park, finding love at the lake… These are some of the worst things that could happen to them!
From 1 to 4 players. Each player gets two moves per turn.
When the last character in any family dies, the game ends. The player with the lowest Family Value wins the game!
Who will be devoured by weasels and who will be wondrously well wed? Find out in Gloom…
